05:21:26LUMOSJust been playing around with the SPDIF in and out. AT last I can record without getting all that digital noise which comes on the Analog in - are there any chips I can buy with and A/D and SPDIF interface so I can build a digital mike preamplifier

06:08:12PsycoXuli get a noise with the internal mic but only when the HD's not spinning
06:08:15PsycoXulit's kindof odd and annoying
06:08:24PsycoXulcause the HD spins up and the noise goes away but then there's the HD noise
06:08:36PsycoXuland then there's a split second where there's no noise as it spins down
06:08:43PsycoXuland then this other high-pitched noise comes in

19:48:08*adam wonders what type of LiIon they typically package with the Recorder FM
19:49:19 Join tracktheripper [0] (
19:50:37adamgot a new player today :)
19:50:45adamthe old studio 20 seems so clunky compared to it
19:50:45tracktheripperwhich one Adam?
19:50:49adamRecorder FM
19:50:53adamDidn't really want it
19:50:57adamI wanted the vanilla recorder
19:50:58tracktheripperI wanna get one!
19:51:06tracktheripperI have a Jukebox Recorder 10
19:51:15adamI like the LCD
19:51:32tracktheripperthe only problem is the proprietory batteries
19:51:40tracktheripperthe normal Recorders take standard batteries
19:51:47adamNiMH are fun
19:51:59tracktheripperi wanna get 2000 Mah cells
19:52:04adamI don't know what kind of LiIon batteries they're using, which is what I'm trying to figure out
19:52:07tracktheripperbut i can't seem to find them :(
19:52:20adamheh, yeah, I've settled with 1800
19:52:37adambut I can see why they got rid of them
19:52:42adamthey added a bit of weight to it
19:52:48tracktheripperwell I suppose Li - Ion cells don't have "memory defect" like NiMhs
19:52:55adamI thought that was NiCad
19:53:05adamI just wore my NiMH out
19:53:07tracktheripperbut then again NiMHs are a lot easier to replace
19:53:25adamI just use them in other things now, I gues
19:53:28tracktheripperI get 10-12 hour battery life on my 1500Mah NiMHs
19:53:34adamI'm trying to sell my old studio 20
19:53:45adamit's really suffering majorly from reliability problems
19:54:04tracktheripperthe Players have a much crappier circuitry
19:54:08adama friend wants it for about 160$, though, I'll let her borrow it to see if she *really* wanted it
19:54:09adamyeah, they do
19:54:10tracktheripperlike hardware battery charging
19:54:24tracktheripperand the LCD on the Player is best left unmentioned
19:54:24adamI like how it's like an evolutionary thing
19:54:32adamhaha, the LCD is like...
19:54:40adamyeah. Sad :P
19:54:44tracktheripper2 lines of 11 massive character cells?
19:54:53tracktherippermore like an 80's brick mobile phone
19:55:04adamI dunno
19:55:16adamI regret not spending more and getting a recorder 20
19:55:26adamnow I've got this one ;p
19:55:33adamso it's a big jump
19:55:34tracktheripperthe Recorders have better sound quality and better build
19:55:38adamyeah, they do
19:55:43adamI just noticed the difference
19:55:47tracktheripperI wouldn't change my beloved Recorder 10 for the world
19:55:58adamwell, maybe to a Recorder 100 ;p
19:56:07adamif you felt like cracking it open
19:56:15tracktheripperwell I put a 200Gb drive in mine
19:56:18tracktheripper(i wish)
19:56:26adamthat'd be excessive
19:56:32adamin that case, I'd just go buy a new one ;p
19:56:41adamhave two :p
19:56:47tracktheripperlol if u really want to put a 700Gb ATA tape drive in it :-)
19:56:49tracktheripperHUGE capacity
19:57:02adamI'd need 700 gigs of mp3s first
19:57:33tracktheripperfor the space of 700Gb MP3s you could have twice as many WMAs
19:57:49adambut I couldn't record those in Linux
19:58:06tracktheripperbut you could use Ogg Vobis
19:58:08adamI suppose they could *play* in Linux
19:58:09tracktheripperor MP3Pro
19:58:16tracktheripperMP3Pro has better sound quality than WMA
19:58:17adamand Ogg would require a compatible player
19:58:34tracktheripperIve compared WMA and MP3Pro and MP3Pro sounds far, far better
19:58:50adamuntil I get a portable 5'1 speaker set, I won't worry
19:59:15*adam plays with fonts
19:59:32adamI'm wondering what to use
19:59:39tracktheripperAdam what is the FM quality like on the FM REcorder?
19:59:48tracktheripperI find the standard font in Bold suits me okay
19:59:48adamtrack - varies
19:59:56 Nick PsycoXul_ is now known as PsycoXul (
20:00:03adamI can listen to BBC and all that pretty good
20:00:17 Quit Snorlax ()
20:00:18adambut the FM quality sucks
20:00:21adamsince the music sucks
20:00:32adamnothing to listen to
20:00:48adam"wow, *more* Nu-metal!"
20:00:49tracktheripperI remember the Feature Request in Sourceforge "Make the Normal Recorders Pick Up FM Like The FM Recorder" :-)
20:01:06adambuy a walkman
20:01:22tracktheripperthat was officially "the most outrageous request" in Sourceforge
20:02:03adamI just want to get this FM recorder to show a somewhat accurate feedback on battery life
20:02:28adamI find it strange, since it's using divisions of MaH to determine the length of battery life
20:02:36adamwhich I don't think would work too well if I don't know the MaH
20:02:57tracktheripperwell :-)
20:03:07tracktheripperI want the "inverted video line"
20:03:37adammy only request for a feature currently would be to get recordings to go in a special recording folder ;P
20:03:52adamyou could specify it in a dot file or something of that sort
20:03:55tracktheripperyea that would be helpful. You can do that on the Archos firmware
20:04:12tracktheripperwell in the Archos firmware u can record to a folder of ur choice
20:04:19adamI haven't really missed the FM ;p
20:04:20tracktheripperu cannot do that in Rockbox
20:04:37tracktheripperI prefer the design of the normal Recorders to the FM recorder myself
20:04:45tracktheripperthe FM Recorder looks like a melted Ipod
20:04:48adamI don't see why Archos doesn't use 'rockbox' firmware ;P
20:05:06PsycoXulthe FM recorder doesn't resemble the ipod at all
20:05:12tracktheripperyes it does
20:05:18PsycoXuli looked at them together
20:05:19tracktheripperit has a round thing below an LCD screen
20:05:30PsycoXulso do all recorders
20:05:36PsycoXuland players
20:05:46tracktheripper((slaps PsycoXul))
20:05:51adamwell, I like how it's alot lighter than my older boxes
20:06:05adamand so far, it hasn't done anything weird
20:06:11tracktheripperwell I prefer the industrial design and build of the normal Recorders))
20:06:25adamyeah, this thing seems alot more solid than the studio
20:06:27tracktheripperthe normal recorders "feel" like a proper MP3 player
20:06:29adamnot suprisingly
20:06:35PsycoXulwell i'll say i'm not really comfortable with how small the bumpers are on the FM
20:07:01adamPsy - doesn't look so clunky, but yeah, I've had an LCD shatter on me :p
20:07:14tracktheripperwell put it this way Psyco. YOU would break if you was kept being dropped on the pavement
20:07:35PsycoXuli've been dropped on the pavement lots
20:07:37PsycoXuland i never broke
20:07:55tracktheripperwell YOU would break if you was kept being thrown against a wall :-)
20:08:01adamI just want to see if I can find somewhere I can buy batteries like the one in the recorder fm
20:08:17tracktheripperwell Adam u prob have to buy them direct from Archos
20:08:21adamideally LiIon batteries would have that same difference in capacity the NiMH
20:08:24tracktheripperif they are proprietory batteries
20:08:27adamtracktheripper - that's the thing, they don't seem to sell them
20:08:42adamwell, wait
20:08:46tracktheripperwell phone up their veryy nice support line and ask them nicely
20:08:46adamthat's second hand information
20:09:11tracktheripperDoes anyone here have a Trinitron monitor?
20:09:26adamit's got two little lines across it
20:09:28tracktheripperI hate those shadow lines you get on Trinitron screens
20:09:29adamI got used to it.
20:09:44adamdoesn't really bug me
20:09:53adamit's like, I've got a big scratch on the monitor's glass surface ;p
20:10:02tracktheripperwell spent ages looking at a Trinitron monitor and I cannot get used to those damn shadow lines
20:10:04adamso it's like, I can sit in front of any monitor now, and they all look *normal*
20:10:19tracktheripperand I hate dead pixels on TFT screens
20:10:23adamI don't know what I'll replace my monitor with
20:10:29adamdead pixels bother me
20:10:46PsycoXuli've got a dead pixel on this crt
20:10:51tracktheripperyea my mates laptop has a dead pixel right in the center (A bright red one)
20:10:56tracktheripperHaving dinner be back later
20:10:59tracktheripper<−− away
20:11:20PsycoXulheh it's just black though and not usualy noticable heh
20:11:20*adam makes timidity midi lame mp3s...
20:11:33adamFear the Crystallis Pyramid theme!
20:12:05PsycoXulthough there's been times i was playing a game and looking at the map and saw a black dot on the map and thought it was something till i moved it and the dot stayed in the same spot on the screen :p
20:12:34PsycoXultimidity has issues
20:12:58adamI figured out what was wrong with the latest debian packages
20:13:32PsycoXulwell i've yet to figure out any settings where it sounded as good as hardware mixing
20:13:50adamwell, doesn't that demand better samples?
20:14:10PsycoXuland it always plays some wrong notes and other odd things like that in some of my midi's that play fine through hardware
20:14:16PsycoXuladam: using the same exact sample set in both even
20:14:36adamI could make use of LineOut magic
20:14:42PsycoXultimidity Vs. emu8k or emu10k1
20:14:53PsycoXulusing the same soundfont for either
20:14:56tracktheripperFRAUNHOFER codec is BEST!
20:15:04adamI know what you mean
20:15:17adambut this machine doesn't even have a decent sound card ;p
20:15:28adamit's a crappy ancient laptop I use when I'm at home
20:15:32adamrunning Linux...
20:15:52PsycoXulwith the emu10k1 i can record with the synth as the input
20:16:11adamyeah, that'd be nice
20:16:15PsycoXulbut it still is recording which takes time and seems to lose quality/gain noise
20:16:32PsycoXultracktheripper: i don't think you understand much about mp3 :p
20:17:20adamthis font is too big
20:17:24adamusing Chicago
20:17:31adambrings back memories of my old mac :p
20:17:34adambut uh, sucks for mp3 player
20:18:50adamI wonder how the iPod screen compares
20:22:06tracktheripperFinished dinner :-)
20:22:17*PsycoXul waiting for breakfast
20:22:22tracktheripperwell as far as im concerned an MP3 file is an MP3 file
20:22:30tracktheripperbe it Fraunhofer, Blade or Lame
20:22:41PsycoXulwell it is an mp3 file
20:22:49PsycoXulthere's a huge amount of varience between the actual content
20:22:53PsycoXulby the nature of mp3
20:22:58PsycoXulit's all psychoacoustics
20:23:07PsycoXuland filters
20:23:09PsycoXuland stuff
20:23:12tracktheripperyea PsycoXul but different brands of Smartmedia cards don't make ur digital photos different colours
20:23:28PsycoXuland they all use different psychoaccoustic models and filter algorithms and paramaters
20:23:34PsycoXultracktheripper: there's a world of difference
20:23:37adammp3s are different
20:23:45PsycoXulsmartmedia cards are literral digital data storage
20:23:55adamdifferent brands of smartmedia cards also don't *lose* information in storage
20:23:57PsycoXulmp3 uses algorithms based on the subjectivity of human perception
20:24:05tracktheripperPsycoXul Listen to me Carefully
20:24:14PsycoXultracktheripper: read that last line again
20:24:23PsycoXultracktheripper: algorithms based on the SUBJECTIVITY of HUMAN PERCEPTION
20:24:35PsycoXulit's NOT the same data.
20:24:45tracktheripperTake 3 identical MP3 files at 192kbs made using Blade, Lame and Fraunhofer
20:24:57PsycoXulthey won't be identical
20:25:04adamthey couldn't be identical
20:25:09tracktheripperAll 3 MP3s will be the same file size and therfore contain the same number of 1s and 0s so therefore they will sound the same!
20:25:20adamwell, they'll sound *close* to the same
20:25:25adambut they can't be the same
20:25:26PsycoXulthey won't necessarily even be the same file size
20:25:29adamsince you're using different methods
20:25:32PsycoXulbut that doesn't mean anything even if they are
20:25:39tracktheripperbut they will be the same bitrate 192kbs :-)
20:25:54PsycoXultracktheripper: they're using different psychoaccoustic models
20:26:03tracktheripper<−−−− is off to have a sulk
20:26:07PsycoXultracktheripper: which means they filter out different frequencies, and cut out different information
20:26:22tracktheripper<−−−−- is very upset
20:26:34adamso far, the rockbox default looks nice.
20:26:57PsycoXuli like smalltalkmonotight
20:27:02adamtoo small
20:27:06adamhard to read at a distance
20:27:07tracktheripperI couldn't believe that comment I submitted to one feature request
20:27:45adamI still like Chicago 12...
20:27:51adamit's way too big
20:27:57adamI want Monaco, from the same mac days :P
20:28:00tracktheripperI said you could display multiple album covers on the Player by squeezing each cover into the Player's character cells
20:28:03adamthat was *the* font for fixed width
20:28:26tracktheripperhahaha :-)
20:28:44PsycoXulyeah 1-bit 5x7 images
20:28:47*adam is imagining one of those faux inserts they use in mall :p
20:28:50PsycoXulthat'd be pretty
20:28:50adamer, malls...
20:29:12tracktheripperBjorn said, Convert 2 covers to 5x71bit images and try and make sense of the black squares
20:29:22adamideally, I want to have a color LCD sample of like a bird flying or something on a jukebox...
20:30:01PsycoXuladam: i could probably make a converter between the serial port on the archos and the serial port on my pda
20:30:10PsycoXuland then it's just a matter of software support for both
20:30:16PsycoXuland making the best use of 9600bps
20:30:18tracktheripper(gives Psychoxul a big hug))
20:30:46*adam will stick to trying to find replacement batteries ;p
20:30:59adamI'll probably have to go to some Taiwanese plant
20:30:59PsycoXulif i ever do attempt such a thing
20:31:06adamand then talk to the man who has the jade monkey statue
20:31:09PsycoXulit'll have to wait till linux is usable on my pda
20:31:20PsycoXuli'd hate to try to do anything with the serial port in wince
20:31:20adamheh, I *considered* a PDA
20:31:23adamspecifically the Zaurus.
20:31:25tracktheripperLinux is depressing :-(
20:31:36adamsince I could play NES games on the PDA :P
20:31:51adamI figured I could just buy a new mp3 player :P
20:31:55PsycoXulmine can play NES, SNES, and (color)gameboy
20:31:56adamand use that alot more than a PDA
20:32:03adamyeah, SNES is cool
20:32:08adamkind of need the buttons for it
20:32:09PsycoXulit can't do gba though
20:32:15PsycoXulor anything higher
20:32:31PsycoXul200mhz MIPS processor
20:32:33adamfor SNES, I'd need a decent 'joypad' of sorts
20:32:42PsycoXulyeah thats the big problem
20:32:49adamyou can play maybe ogre battle...
20:32:50tracktheripperIm thinking of getting an Archos Multimedia
20:32:55PsycoXuli guess these emulators use buttons on the screen you have to tap with the stylus
20:33:17*adam just kind of stumbled upon rockbox before it was called rockbox
20:33:19PsycoXuleven though the device does have a direction pad and some buttons
20:33:23adamwhen I first picked up my jukebox
20:33:28adamI remember the first firmware
20:33:29adamit sucked :P
20:33:35adamwell, not first relase
20:33:37PsycoXuladam: yeah me too
20:33:37adamer, release
20:33:39adambut a really early one
20:33:45PsycoXuli looked into all the mp3 players
20:33:47adamthen I come back like several months later
20:33:49adamthen bang :P
20:33:53PsycoXuland saw the archos and thought "this ones gonna get hacked first"
20:34:01PsycoXulso i got it
20:34:10tracktheripperyea but wouldt hacking the Archos upset Archos?
20:34:11adamI never really thought of hacking it
20:34:11PsycoXuland then i found the page with the LED blinker
20:34:24adamtracktheripper - uh... it upsets them if you try to send it IN broken
20:34:32adambut I don't think they care what you do to it
20:34:44adamI would hope not
20:34:47adamI'm a libertarian
20:34:56adamwhat I do with my archos is my own business... (insert evil laughter)
20:36:12PsycoXulman i need to get a 40G drive for mine though
20:36:21PsycoXulalready got a few GB more than'll fit on it and i keep finding more to get heh
20:36:35adamI've got too many drives just sitting around
20:36:41adamone seagate that seems to be busted
20:36:53adamand my western digital cheapass drive
20:36:59adamthen my maxtor ubercheapass drive
20:37:09adamit's one of those 8mb buffer ATA drives they released
20:37:15adamDiamondMax something or other
20:37:34tracktheripperWHY oh why oh why can you no longer send a feature request as Anon?
20:37:49adamyou must take responsibility for what you post.
20:38:00PsycoXulhmm ~$110 w/ shipping for 40G on pricewatch...
20:38:05tracktheripperyea but befure u could send comments as Anon
20:38:11adamyeah, I think I got mine for 130$ something
20:38:14adamit was an 80 gig
20:38:23adamwell, *is*
20:38:26adamthen I have two 30 gigs
20:38:31adamone I might as well just pawn off :P
20:38:35tracktheripperwheres Zagor when u need him?
20:38:37adam"50$, may even work!"
20:39:00PsycoXulheh well what good is that :p
20:39:11adamoh, no idea
20:39:26*PsycoXul checks ebay
20:39:26adamyou also run into a problem with transmission thruput, though
20:39:36adamwhat's the point of having a 60 gig 9mm drive when you're stuck with USB2 ;p
20:39:50adamwell, then again, I need a USB2 card for my main box, I guess
20:40:19PsycoXuli don't think my desktop drives even do 60MB/s
20:40:41adamI don't think that one does either... ;p
20:40:43adamif it's 9mm
20:40:57PsycoXuland i just put mp3's on it
20:40:58adamunless it's like 60k rpm or some such crap :P
20:41:35adamer, I'm not that eager about cracking this thing open
20:41:39adamI like how it *works* ;p
20:42:04PsycoXuli haven't seen any HD upgrade guides for the FM recorders either
20:42:13PsycoXulwhich obviously come appart differently than the standard ones
20:42:17tracktheripperif they use a little more "pixie dust" they could make 100Gb notebook drives
20:42:59adamas soon as they get 100 gig platters
20:43:07adamwhich I guess they probably already have
20:43:13adambut hell
20:43:35adamyou'd have to get smaller platters, as well
20:43:38tracktheripperThey could make the platters slimmer so they could squeeze an extra 1 in

20:44:27tracktheripperWhy don't they fill a 9.5mm drive enclosure with 60Gb Flash Memory? That would be soooooooooo cool!
20:44:42PsycoXuland expensive
20:44:46adamcost wise
20:45:05adam1 gig flash costs what
20:45:31tracktheripperbut with 60Gb Flash Memory you would get megafast file transfer and NO MOVING PARTS!
20:45:59adamand an extra $18,000
20:46:12PsycoXulit'd possibly be lighter too
20:46:13tracktheripperThere has to be a reason why Flash Memory is so expensive
20:46:20tracktheripperafter all hard drives are a lot cheaper
20:46:20PsycoXuland you wouldn't worry about data corruption when you dropped it, or skips
20:46:32adambecause there isn't that much demand
20:46:34tracktheripperand wouldn't need defragmenting
20:46:42adamand not enough companies are producing it in large quantities?
20:46:54adam*or*, they just artificially inflate the price, Sony style
20:46:58tracktheripperMind you, they are looking at holographic storage
20:47:00adami.e. playstation 2 memory cards
20:47:06adam8 mbs, for some 30$
20:48:50tracktheripperwith holograpic storage you could squeeze 50Tb onto a CD :)
20:48:52*adam notes he has to sell this thing quickly :P
20:49:00adambefore it blows up or something
20:49:08PsycoXulwhich thing
20:49:15adammy old studio 20
20:49:19tracktheripperI read it in a PC mag
20:49:20PsycoXulheh why
20:49:29adamI've got my new player, I have no need for it
20:49:29tracktheripperHolographic storage stores data in 3 dimentions
20:49:59PsycoXulso the best deal i can find for a 40G 9.5mm drive is ebay buy it now for $98.50 + $8 shipping
20:50:30adamI'd just wait
20:50:34adamthey'll get cheaper ;p
20:50:40adamI guess that's not alot
20:50:45adambut it's like, depreciation sets in
20:50:50tracktheripperI think 40Gb is overkill for music
20:51:08adambut you also have the hard drive aspect
20:51:10PsycoXultracktheripper: thats cause you don't have 40GB of music
20:51:14adamI cram mine full of divx files every once in awhile
20:51:32PsycoXuli've got >20GB
20:51:34tracktheripperyea but even so 40Gb is like all your songs at 320kbs
20:51:39adamPsyco - what we need is a communal hive mind music sharing system
20:51:41PsycoXuli could probably go with a 30GB
20:51:48adamwhy the hell would all your songs be at 320?
20:51:48tracktheripper I encode at 192kbs which suits me prefectly
20:51:49PsycoXuli know i'll keep getting more
20:51:55adamit's like
20:52:03PsycoXultracktheripper: no, see
20:52:05PsycoXultracktheripper: the thing is
20:52:09PsycoXultracktheripper: i keep getting MORE music
20:52:13PsycoXultracktheripper: and then it fills up
20:52:30adamI know the pain
20:52:31PsycoXuli had 9GB of mp3's when i got my archos for xmas 2001
20:52:44PsycoXulsince then it's grown to over 20GB
20:52:57tracktheripperPsycoXul my very first MP3 player was an MP3 CD portable
20:53:03tracktheripperthen It was a Creative Labs Nomad
20:53:14*adam just picked up an archos
20:53:43adamI had like 70 mp3s when I first got it
20:53:52PsycoXuli had a fischer portable CD player from like 1992
20:53:54PsycoXultill i got my archos
20:54:13adambut I've since begun the practice of borrowing CDs from friends
20:54:14PsycoXulthe play button had broken off so i had to stick a key or screwdriver down in there and jiggle the button on the circuit board to get it to play
20:54:43adampsycho - that's really sad.
20:54:57tracktherippermy Archos has never, ever gone wrong
20:55:02adamreminds me of my friend's TV
20:55:05PsycoXulso then i got a studio20
20:55:08adamit has no buttons anymore
20:55:12PsycoXuland it was good.
20:55:19adamBoth of mine have acted up
20:55:28adamthe first one was okay, I guess
20:55:33adamjust the LCD shattered
20:55:38tracktheripperand its been really heavily used every day for 9 months
20:55:41adammy second one seemed like it was already defective :p
20:55:46adambut yeah, I've been heavily using them
20:55:51PsycoXuli figured i'd probably have it untill like the 3rd generation multimedia units were cheap :p
20:56:02tracktheripperbut I feel my next Player will be a Zen or an Ipod
20:56:02PsycoXullike another 10 years or something :p
20:56:17adamwell, the iPod strikes me as way too proprietary
20:56:32PsycoXulbut then it quit charging and bestbuy gave me an fm recorder for it
20:56:35PsycoXulso i got a free upgrade
20:56:38tracktheripperbut theres no denying that the Ipod is very very sexy
20:56:50PsycoXuli wonder if the FM recorder goes dead in the next year or 2 if they'll give me a multimedia
20:56:58tracktheripperHaving ice-cream be right back
20:56:58PsycoXultracktheripper: i don't think it's very sexy
20:57:08adamand expensive
20:57:12adamand no where near as hackable
20:57:19adamand it won't load up in Linux, to the best of my knowledge
20:57:50adamheh, they've got it working?
20:57:56PsycoXulgo look
20:58:01PsycoXulthey've got pictures of linux running on it
20:58:02adamwell, I can't say I'm impressed... ;p
20:58:08adamLinux on the iPod
20:59:00adamI guess the big problem I see with that is...
20:59:00PsycoXulbut it's got even fewer buttons than archos players
20:59:02adamno keyboard... ;p
20:59:02PsycoXulwhich i don't like
20:59:19adamyou just need a space cadet keyboard in the form factor of an iPod
20:59:22PsycoXuland i'd be so afraid to drop it and watch it shatter into a million bright curvy plastic pieces
21:00:03adamyeah, no bumpers
21:00:12adamThis studio 20 I'm trying to sell
21:00:15adamI've seriously seen it smoke
21:00:18adamlike, smoke :P
21:00:23adamand it *STILL WORKS*
21:00:34adamthe thing is a tank
21:01:05PsycoXulheh when i took my studio20 into bestbuy
21:01:16PsycoXulthe lady getting the new one for me didn't see any archos' at first
21:01:21PsycoXuland she tried to give me a creative labs one
21:01:55PsycoXuli made her look again and then she found the fm rec
21:01:55adamdid you laugh at her?
21:02:06adamI wish best buy people were all so clueless
21:02:09adamwell, wait
21:02:10adamthey are :P
21:02:22adamI just need my battery to 'wear' out at a convient time
21:02:34adamer, convienient
21:02:38PsycoXulwell they had all their mp3 players stuffed in this one little cage
21:02:45adamyeah, I've seen that as well
21:02:54adamat least, the one locally
21:03:22PsycoXulall you could see of the archos was an annonymous purple box side
21:03:34PsycoXulkinda stuck in the back
21:03:48adamso she picked up a Recorder FM?
21:03:58PsycoXulthat was the recorder FM
21:04:07adamthat's pretty lucky
21:04:10PsycoXulit was like the only archos they had
21:04:16PsycoXulwell, this is southern california
21:04:21PsycoXulthey've been out of the older models for a long time now

21:09:16CW-EGM92I got something to confess.... a sin if you will I sold myarchos.... in need of somethnig muchbetter :'(
21:09:17PsycoXuldoes it feel god to type in caps too?
21:09:36adamget an Archos Recorder FM
21:09:40adamI'm selling my Jukebox studio 20
21:09:50CW-EGM92how much?
21:09:57adam155$ to a friend damn expensive
21:10:11CW-EGM92is that USD or CAD?
21:10:41adamI was initially asking 180$
21:10:45CW-EGM92yea too damn expensive at Bestbuy I seen the studio 20and Recorders going for 179.99new and 199.99new
21:10:49adamI saw the studio 10 for 200$
21:10:58adamat Best Buy :P
21:11:15adamwell, that was the Recorder 10, actually
21:11:21adamthere is a difference ;p
21:11:38adamhey, please stop the caps
21:11:39CW-EGM92sorry about the caps
21:11:39PsycoXulfm rec
21:11:45adamyeah, Fm Recorder
21:11:47adamI just got one.
21:11:49CW-EGM92fucking keyboardf is A LITTLE MESSED
21:11:52PsycoXulme too
21:11:52adamIt's GOD.
21:12:08CW-EGM92what is soospecial abou the FM recorder?
21:12:11adamand it can be exposed to sunlight
21:12:14adamunlike the iPod
21:12:29adamwhich will immediately shatter, into millions of pieces of stardust and pixie tears
21:12:39adamit's so fragile...
21:12:45adamthe FM Recorder kicks ass.
21:13:05CW-EGM92i got an IPod 10gb.... it's not very sensitive... just needs a casing
21:13:14adamthat's what is *so* special.
21:13:16adamit's lighter than the average archos, the build is different (I prefer it), less clunky in general.
21:13:25adamnot very sensitive, it just needs a casing
21:13:34adamthat's a contradiction right there
21:13:36PsycoXulnothing is god untill we've all got generic highly-capable globally-wireless-broadband-networked devices that share storage and processing accross the world to accomodate any computing task possible almost instantly etc etc :p
21:13:55adamuntil then
21:13:59adambuy a Recorder FM
21:14:17CW-EGM92it can take a beating i mean but it will ruin the original casing so just cahnge the color round i bought an aluminum casing for 10$ on ebay
21:15:08adamwell, if you've already got a player, why get another?
21:15:08CW-EGM92PsycoXul....... ever think of getting a bluetooth chip and just fucking aronud with it till u start stealing peoples information?
21:15:35CW-EGM92cause I don't always use a player for a player, I need something for an HDD
21:15:41adam"<PsycoXul> No
21:15:53adamisn't 10 gig kind of small?
21:16:07adamand unless you've got the special software, it won't work between machines very well, will it?
21:16:07PsycoXulhmm only 46MB free... blah
21:16:11CW-EGM92cause my Ipod is for mac use only I have to use XPTools to make it work here and i lose a lot of functions
21:16:49adamwell, the archos FM doesn't really have alot of functions to lose in the first place
21:16:56adamit's just mounted as a USB hard drive
21:16:58adamas it should be
21:16:58CW-EGM92with archos i just plug in the USB and I GOT A PORTABLE HDD
21:17:11adamassuming you've got drivers handy
21:17:22adambut yeah, I use it on any machine I sit down with
21:17:27adammy box at the dorm
21:17:30adamthis craptop

21:18:13adamthe FM recorder can record off radio
21:18:16adamand it has a built in mic
21:18:34PsycoXuland a line-in/digital-in
21:18:38CW-EGM92I know but can it stream to the harddrive and save whats playing?
21:18:39adamso I can pretend to listen to music
